The Creature from the Deep is a Hardmode enemy from the Solar Eclipse event. They attack like most other fighter-type enemies on land, but they also have the ability to swim. While they are in water, their speed and maneuverability increases dramatically. It is also capable of jumping out of the water towards the player, doing so with maneuverability similar to a Unicorn.


  • The Creature from the Deep is a reference to the Gill-man from the 1954 horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon.[1]
  • If it is forced through a 2 block high space, it will stand with its arms down for a few seconds and then start moving away from the player.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Creature from the Deep: "Said to have emerged from the blackest lagoons, these fish-men lash at their victims with unmatched submerged mobility."
